Mercury Retrograde Midpoint

We've reached the Half-way mark of the current retrograde. While challenging for me personally, I trust the growth I gain from it. I hope the same for you.

Who Are You: Mercury Retrograde in Leo

( I’m sorry for the considerable delay on this post. I blame the Retrograde. Hopefully, you will find this useful. Thank you for your indulgence)

Mercury Retrograde in Leo began on July 25th. As of this posting we are halfway through (it concludes on August 18/19th   12:25 EDT/ 9:25PDT). This particular Retrograde may ask you to evaluate what roles you play in your daily life and positions you occupy to determine if they serve you. “Who you are?” Maybe the most important question you’ll be asking yourself at this time. Re-examination of your loyalties, position and past priories in some area may very significant for you at this time.

Mercury, in Astrology, governs thought, communications, short term travel and Ideas. It is the ruling planet for Gemini and Virgo. In its retrograde mode Mercury operates in a fashion contrary its normal function, requiring us to review, reexamine or/and reconsider our thinking and plans

 Leo, In astrology, represents authority and rulership and members of this sign are the natural leaders of the zodiac.  Leo, at its best, can be generous, loyal and honorable. At its worst, it can be over-confident, egotistical and inflexible.

Mercury in Leo may require a second look or rehabilitation of some role or position in your life. Where are you in charge and where are must cede control to other forces? Is it time to prepare major transition or to commit yourself to your current position? The next three weeks may ask you to reaffirm or reestablish your place or position in some area of your life.

 Retrogrades are not periods to initiate new endeavors, but review past ones. Real changes should be made after the transit ends on August 18/19th. Things may change during this period, but take your cue from issues that arise during the transit. You may need to make some adjustments at this time, but leave off radical changes until after Mercury goes direct. Spend time in spiritual practices and creative endeavors during this period. Any creative projects should prove helpful and instructive at this time. You should dwell upon things that predate the retrograde and be mindful of starting any new works during the transit.
  It is at this point we issue the standard reminder about retrogrades. They have the power to delay and confound plans and day to day operations.  Devices for communication are susceptible to Mercury's caprices, so be mindful of this when dealing with computers, cell phones and written information.   The potential for miscommunication are considerable so strive for clarity in all of your messaging.
Leo, it's a time good time to review personal progress you’ve made this year. What has been successful, what has not and what adjustments, if any, need to be made after the retrograde to fortify and reinforce yourself. Review past decision with an eye towards the future.
 Aquarius, this may be a time where some overlooked issue or matter will reassert itself, calling for corrective measures or repairs. You may only be required to acknowledge the matter, but as with all matters during a Retrograde, you’ll need to  address the matter in some indirect way untill after August 18.
Scorpio and Taurus, this retrograde may place you in very trying circumstance about who you are and where you belong. The resolution lies inmay lie in rising to the challenge and manage the concern until a likely breakthrough occurs after August 18

"Know thyself" and "Who are you” may prove good mottos for this retrograde.  As Mercury retrograde asks you question about who you are, search inside your heart for the answers. Courage comes from the French  word for heart and the upcoming Mercury Retrograde in Leo will ask you to find yours.
